Herminia "Min" Bautista Fuller, 83, of Niceville, Florida went to be with her Heavenly Father on Dec. 20, 2020 after a battle with mixed dementia that included Alzheimer's disease.
Herminia was born Apr. 25, 1937 to Conrado and Aurora Bautista in La Huerta, Parañaque, Philippines. After graduating with her bachelor’s degree, she went to work as a secretary at Clark Air Base, Philippines where she met her future husband.
In 1964, Herminia married Richard J. Fuller in La Huerta, Parañaque, Philippines. She honorably served as a proud military spouse in the United States Air Force for over 20 years. She worked for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service for over 16 years in addition to raising their three children. After her retirement, she felt a calling and became a member of the Legion of Mary with Our Lady of Victory in Crestview, Florida.
She touched the lives of everyone she met. She was a passionate artist with a love for ceramics. One of her greatest accomplishments was her years spent caring for the spiritual needs of nursing home residents in the Crestview area. Her legacy as a Legion of Mary member lives on. She will be missed by her family, extended family, fellow Legion of Mary sisters and all who knew her.
Her parents, Conrado and Aurora Bautista, brothers Ernesto and Felix, sister Conchita, and husband Richard J. Fuller preceded her in death. She is survived by her sister Uning, brothers Carling (wife, Bernie) and Pitong, her son, James M. Fuller (wife, Denise, children, Collin and Brandon); daughter, Catherine A. Fuller (husband Ted, children, Chris and Danielle); daughter, Barbara J. Fuller (child, Nick), in-laws and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Superior Residences of Niceville for their professional, kind and loving care of Mom.
She will be interred with her husband at Barrancas National Cemetery in Pensacola, Florida. A memorial service with family and friends will be held at a later date due to current pandemic restrictions. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to Alzheimer's Disease Research. A tribute page has been established in her honor at http://act.alz.org/goto/Herminia-B-Fuller
